New BJP Website

From its rich content right down to the paper stock it is printed on, the British Journal of Photography is a beautiful magazine indeed.

The new-look site has been pleasingly simplified, creating a satisfying and appealing user experience.

Uuni Oven

If, like me, you have often dreamed of owning a wood-fired oven for cooking perfect pizzas, but known it was a near impossibility due to the weighty price tag, now is a time to rejoice. The Finnish-made Uuni 2 is a portable wood-fired oven delivered to your door for about £175. It is capable of reaching heats of 450°C and you can even take it camping. Yep, I kid you not.

Muc-Off Antibacterial Screen Cleaning Rescue Kit

Today's electronic devices are a breeding ground for bacteria. In fact studies have shown there are more germs on your phone than a toilet seat. That's what Muc-Off say, anyway, and although it fuels the paranoia of persons like myself, I reckon they're probably right.  The cute little device and screen cleaning kit comprises of a 35ml bottle of antibacterial spray (all biodegradable!), an ultra fine weave micro fibre cleaning cloth and costs just £3.99. Perfect for cleaning your laptop, smartphone or camera. Available from Ryman in store or online.
